Well I am looking for a 3 Mp+ in the range of 600

I need something with A4 batts, opportunity to develope further in photography skills ..hopefully

Memory type is fine with me as I do not have any preference.

The 2 above size is about right not too big and not too small. Can also mount additional lens which is a bonus. :)

The A70 costs around $520.. how much does the discontinued C3040 costs?

One big advantage of the C3040 is the F1.8-2.6 lens as compared to the A70 F2.8-4.8 lens. The brighter lens allows u to shoot better in low light conditions without use of flash. It also allows you to shoot with a narrower depth of field effect.

But the A70 is newer with, CF support (which is better and more future proof than SM), noise reduction on long exposures, better movie modes (for fun).. :)

If the C3040 costs considerably more than $600.. I'd think the A70 is a better choice. Both cameras has enough manual features to allow u to learn..

Just my opinion..

if the price is similar, Ill go for the 3040 cos of the faster lens (F1.8). In the SLR world you'll be paying a premium for such lenses....

Thanks for the feedback..

However I have heard that the Canon A70 suffers from image softness..Just want to know if this is true and how bad it is.

Thanks for taking the trouble of helping me out here.
